mi&J REGISTER "COMPLETE AWARENESS FOR COMPLETE COMMITMENT- VOLUME XLIV, NUMBER 24 NORTH CAROUNA AGRICULTURAL AND TECHNICAL STATE UNIVERSITY. GREENSBORO April 6, 1973 Marshall Wins Top SGA Post By Betty Holeman "I'm shocked, I'm happy and I love all those Niggers at A&T, was the reaction of Marilyn Marshall who was in tears hearing she had been elected president of the Student Government Association for the 1973-74 academic term. In her campaign speech Monday she proposed that the pass-fail system be instituted for non-major courses, and that grades be given only for major courses. The prediction of Bennie Glover, chairman of the elections committe, was correct as one-fourth the student body turned out to vote. Glover, stated this was "good." Others being selected to positions were Phyllis Smith, secretary of SGA; Clarice Russel, treasurer of SGA, Gregory Pridgen, senior class president; Photo By Williams MARILYN MARSHALL Larry Penn, senior class vice-president. Class offices, judiciary council positions and those for student legislative positions were unopposed. Election committee member, John Kerns said, "Generally speaking, students made better decisons than usual." Ronald Penny, commented "I think this election was very efficiently done. It was carried ^out in the best manner I've seen" Larry Hinton, SGA president, was around to state, "I hope the newly elected officers will deal more with facts in their offices than they did in their campaigns." However, he said "Students made their choices, and they are intelligent enough to make intelligent ones." Photo By Conley TA KING AD VANTA GE Coeds Rou J. Foist and Ella 1.

The positions being contested are the title of Miss A&T, with Delores Mitchell versus Toni Jones, and the office of Vice President of SGA, with Lloyd Inman running aeainst Joe Lindsav. In the April 4 elections, Delores Mitchell and Lloyd Inman were victorious. Their initial reactions ranged from Inman's exclamation "It's great! I have a chance to do what I want to do," to the feeling expressed by Delores Mitchell, "The Lord must have really been with us." However, both candidates fell short of the required ten percent majority needed to win. In explaining the reason for calling a run-off, Glover stated that the constitution of the Student Government Association gives the elections committee some very broad powers to administer SGA elections. In effect, the committee has the power to establish guidelines for conducting elections, and by extension to set up provisions for a run-off election. Glover noted in response to inquiry, that this runoff election was the first to be held at A&T. This was the first time the elections' committee had used its powers to hold a run-off election.
